This one will be lap size only, I am not going bigger. Pretty much the red will have 4 rows and then I will finish it off with a dark blue edging. Probably single crochet. Nothing fancy.
The yarn used in this blanket is Willow Wash, 100% acrylic. I know, I have said time and again that I hate acrylic but, this stuff is amazing. Yep, I am saying it. It is soft and doesn't make my fingers peel like other acrylics out there. You know the one I am talking about. It is harsh, it is nasty and it is cheaper.
I have to fight the cats and the dogs away from my blanket. They are thinking it is theirs. No, it is mine!
This one has been fun. After I finish it, I have plans to work on more socks. I am currently working on a new pattern and it is fun but, the yarn does not do it justice. I will have to change to a solid colored yarn to show the pattern off. I have plenty of sock yarn so, this isn't a problem at all.
One good thing about being a knitter and crocheter, I will be warm. My family and friends will be warm.
I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful weekend.
